Watch the Event Logs

with 4 comments

It’s the end of our Spring term, and yes occasionally somebody can’t sign on to their Oracle instance because their event log is full. They get the following message on Winodws:

C:\>sqlplus / AS sysdba
SQL*Plus: Release - Production ON Wed Jul 15 10:19:37 2009

ORA-28056: Writing audit records TO Windows Event Log failed

The fix is simple, just delete your items from your Windows’ event log. 😉
